W. Croft (1678-1727)
The Lord Who has remembered us|
His blessing will bestow;
All those who fear His holy Name,
His loving care shall know.
For small and great who fear His Name|
The Lord has good in store;
Ye and your children, blest of God,
Shall prosper more and more.
The great Creator blesses you|
With gifts of boundless worth;
The heavens He claims, but gives to man
Dominion in the earth.
The silent dead praise not the Lord,|
The grave no song can raise;
But we will bless Him evermore,
Let all proclaim His praise.
